Summary: This award winning documentary covers more than 70 years, 3 continents, and 120 hours of interviews as it explores the disappearance of and subsequent 40-year hunt for Klaus Barbie, chief of Gestapo Dept. IV in Lyon, France, 1942-1944
Summary: Klaus Barbie, a ruthless SS interrogator known as the "Butcher of Lyon" was implicated in 4,000 deaths and the deportation of 7,000 Jews from occupied France - and then he disappeared. This film traces the 40 year hunt for Barbie, a hunt initiated by the very governments that later hid him and protected his family. Klaus Barbie, a wanted Nazi war criminal, was employed by the American government as an informant in Germany. When discovery was dangerously close, Barbie was smuggled out of Europe on an underground railway with ties to the Vatican. He took refuge in South America, where his "talents" were employed by the governments in Bolivia and Peru. Until he was finally brought to trial in 1987, governments harbored Barbie at the same time that his crimes were being denounced.
